Recommended Posts

I've been keeping a close watch on the new features that are being added to the next release of the forum software. There are going to be some great changes that are on the way and I'll use this topic to index them all.

We currently use a default profile photo (square SKF Aquatics logo) when our members have not set one. Whilst this has worked well in the past, it’s time to “get with the times” and this will be changed to be a little more personal. Letter profile photos will make it easy to quickly differentiate multiple members (who have not set a profile photo) in a busy topic.

The existing reputation/like system is getting an overhaul and becoming more social like and will be called “Reactions”. Those familiar with social networks will be quite familiar with how this works.

So the new site updates should be here by June sometime. In the meantime, you may want to think about your avatars as we move the default square to a more modern rounded style. Round avatars are available today with some themes but we hadn't made the move yet.

@NoGi are these changes still coming?

Most definitely, I’m just waiting on the final release version. They anticipate in Summer season for the US so not far now.

      Yep, I see it too... Will look into this... Recently upgraded to the latest forum software... Always bugs to fix afterward... Thanks @Grubs for bringing this to my attention.

      I'm getting an error loading Articles but only when signed in to the forum.  Tested with  latest Firefox Quantum 69.0  and Edge.  Articles load perfectly  if I sign out, but not when signed in.

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
